Congrats and Thanks

Summer Reading is officially over, but we had an amazing time at all the teen events. Not to mention that based on the number of tickets we printed, you guys definitely beat last year’s number of hours read! I can’t wait to post the real numbers next week. Thanks for everyone who came out to the programs. What a great summer with a great group of teens!!!

We had a great time learning to Samba last week. If you’re going to watch the Olympics opening ceremonies, I’ll bet they’ll have some amazing Samba performances since it’s the dance of Rio!
